GREENCASTLE, Pa. - After a lengthy executive session Thursday evening, the Greencastle-Antrim School Board decided the punishment for three middle school students responsible for a bomb threat at Greencastle-Antrim Middle School on Nov. 12.
The three males, two 14-year-olds and a 13-year-old, have been suspended from school until the end of the first semester, which is Jan. 18, according to Bob Crider, director of secondary education for the Greencastle-Antrim School District. The students will receive homebound instruction during that time.
All three students are on social probation for the rest of the year and whether that extends until next year will be decided at a school board meeting in June, Crider said.
Social probation means the students will be prohibited from extracurricular activities such as dances or sports, Crider said.
Once the students return to school, one will have to complete a psychological evaluation at his parents' expense, two will have in-school suspensions for the entire second semester, and all three will remain on restricted social probation, Crider said.
